Mikkey Dee said about contracting Covid-19:

“Hello guys! I just want to set some rumors straight regarding Don Dokkens statement about my Corona situation. I did get Corona and was sick for about 1 month. And I am now fully recovered since mid April. I was already playing hockey and drums by the end of April. Unfortunately my good friend Don got some info wrong. I did not get Corona in Australia, the virus was contracted in Sweden.”

“I did not loose 35 pounds, I lost 15 pounds. But as I just mentioned, I am now fully recovered and have registred antibodies so that feels great. I can’t wait for things to go back to normal so we can hit the road again. Thank you guys for caring and my heart goes out to each and everyone affected by the current situation our world is in. So stay safe! Mikkey”

Don Dokken said about Mikkey Dee fight against Covid-19:

“I talked to Mikkey Dee from the Scorpions the other night. So he and his wife got Covid-19 in Australia. They were in the middle of nowhere and got it. He called me up and he said, ‘I’ll tell you, Don, you don’t want to get it. I was on the floor.’ He lost 35 pounds. He was sick as a dog. He was in a hospital. So he was really in bad shape. He said, ‘I don’t know how I got it.’ Because they had social distancing big-time in Australia.”

Scorpions is currently working on their next studio album and Klaus Meine said they have a great material recently:

“We have so much great material, and, of course, many, many hard and heavy rockers. A couple of ballads as well. We’re so excited. I tell you it’s a blessing in troubled times, like we all go through right now, that we have a chance to be at home and to go into the studio to work on new material and to go and lose yourself in the creative world. So It’s great.”
